Iowa trial moved for man charged with killing wife

BOONE (AP) — The trial of a man charged with killing his wife in Boone has been moved to a different county.

A judge ruled last week that 39-year-old Alexander Fazzino’s trial will happen in Buchanan County instead of Boone County. Defense attorneys had filed a motion for the move because of media coverage in the area.

Fazzino is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Emily Fazzino. She was found dead on a bathroom floor at the couple’s home in January 2012.

The Des Moines Register reported attorneys also noted in their motion that the status of Emily Fazzino’s family in Boone County would affect the trial.

Buchanan County is more than 130 miles from Boone County. The trial is scheduled to begin in June next year.
